CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: African American Women Empowerment.  Between Disco and Rap there was music such as this.  


PROS AND CONS: An entertaining little time capsule.  Acts like this gave Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus their start.  I can see Beyonce watching these videos as a child and dreaming of being them someday.


The group and their songs sing of joyful empowerment and being assertive.  Gone are the songs of waiting for love and here are the songs about women going out and finding it on their terms.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
